With studios in LA and Tokyo, UKIYO-E PROJECT is a contemporary ukiyo-e publisher founded by Yuka Mitsui in 2014. Its mission is to preserve the art of ukiyo-e by creating a new market for traditional skills. The term “ukiyo” means “present” and “e” means “image,” and ukiyo-e art naturally depicted popular trends and cultures of its time. In line with this philosophy, UKIYO-E PROJECT immortalises contemporary iconic stars and landscapes through traditional woodblock prints. These prints have garnered significant attention from the press and have been acquired by renowned international institutions such as the British Museum, the Museum of Applied Arts in Vienna (MAK), and the Miami University Libraries.
